WALTON COUNTY, GA (June 2, 2024) – Walton County Board of Commissions has on its Tuesday BOC meeting agenda a request from the City of Loganville to allow for the city to annex 60.123 acre on a tract of land located on Tuck Road and Highway 20. This portion of property in question is currently outside of the city limits. Approval of this request, as well as a similar one from Gwinnett County, would open the way for the city to consider green lighting a mixed-use development on the entire 201.376 acre property located at the intersection off Tuck Road and Highway 20. The item has already been the topic of a Town Hall meeting in Loganville in April with the intention of it being up for a vote by the Loganville City Council last month.

However, according to Planning and Zoning Director, Robbie Schwartz, the case was tabled for 60 days by the Planning Commission in April and is scheduled to go back before the Planning Commission at this month’s meeting.

Schwartz said believes it is still possible for the county to vote on the annexation prior to the city voting to approve the request for the annexation. However, for the moment, it remains on the county’s agenda.

If approved by the counties of Walton and Gwinnett for the portions outside of the city limit, Loganville can consider the application for annexation and a proposal for a mixed-use development that includes 232 single-family detached homes, 150 single-family attached townhomes as well as commercial/retail/office developments and open spaces.

The Walton County BOC will have its regular meeting at 6 p.m.on June 4 in the Historic Walton County Courthouse located at 111 S Broad Street in Monroe. The public is invited to attend.
